NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum to Star in Dito Montiel's Newest Movie & Nominated for People's Choice Award
In case you all missed the tweet on Channing Tatum's official Twitter, Production Weekly just confirmed that Chan will be starring in yet another Dito Montiel film very soon.
First there was 'A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints', then 'Fighting', then 'Brotherhood of the Rose', and now we have 'Son of No One'. All written and directed by Dito Montiel and all starring Channing Tatum.
I think Chan may have mentioned this film when he was doing press for 'Fighting' in April, but there's not a lot of details out there for it yet. What we do know is that Chan will be acting along side his 'Fighting' co-star Terrence Howard, James Gandolfini from "The Sopranos" and Robert De Niro from more movies than I could ever list here and who coincidentally also executive produced Chan's 2009 historical drama 'Public Enemies'.
The dramatic thriller is about a young cop who is assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, and an old secret threatens to destroy his life and his family.
Production Weekly reported that 'Son of No One' is scheduled to start filming this January. I'm not sure where the movie's going to be filming yet, but knowing Dito's love of New York City, I'm willing to bet good money that Chan may once again be roaming the streets of NYC come January.
Thanks to CTU reader Belinda, I found out that Chan has been nominated for a People's Choice Award this year. Please make sure you vote for Chan in the "Favorite Action Star" category and then you should also mosey on over to the "Favorite Movie" category to vote for Chan's movie 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra'.
The People's Choice Awards celebrates fan favorites in music, movies and television and is the only major awards show where real people - not industry insiders - determine the nominees and winners. The 2010 show will be broadcast live from Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on January 6, 2010 on the CBS Television Network.
With three movies under his belt and 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' breaking the $300 million mark this week, 2009 has officially been an extremely successful year in the world of Mr. Channing Tatum, so the casting announcement and People's Choice Award nomination didn't surprise me one bit. Congrats to Chan and everyone make sure to vote for him early often!!!
